Top Cow Lets Readers Vote for What to Publish

Top Cow Productions created “Pilot Season” to let readers vote on five brand new comic book concepts. The winning titles get the green light for publication.

At a New York Comic Con panel, publisher Filip Sablik outlined the program. Last year’s “Pilot Season” winners were Twilight Guardian and Genius. This year’s titles included: 39 Minutes, @sset, Forever, Crosshair, and 7 Days in Hell. Three out of five titles have been optioned for film adaptations.

The panel highlighted the Top Cow publication, Rest. The comic explores the consequences of a drug that allows people to stop sleeping. Actor Milo Ventimiglia acts as “editor/producer” for Rest and encouraged panel attendees to really show their support for independent comic book publishers.
